Advancing Community Protection: A White Paper for Pennsylvania

Publication year: 2008  |  Cataloged on: Aug 11, 2011

This white paper is based on the belief that Pennsylvania citizens have a right to be and feel safe from crime. It recognizes that, for the most part, young people who commit crimes are not serious, violent or chronic offenders. It furthers a long-standing policy of making every effort to keep young offenders in their communities-or apply the least restrictive alternative to incarceration-so long as the risk they pose to the public's safety can be managed. Although this White Paper focuses on discrete aspects of the community protection goal, it is the sum total of activities directed toward achieving Pennsylvania's three goals that leads to law abiding, productive and connected citizens who have made amends.
